Seriously, Do You Really Care?

Journey OnI read a blog today called “The Complete Guide to Not Giving a F@#K”. Now, while this blog contains language that most readers of this blog would find offensive I found it somewhat interesting and some words to live by. The whole premise of the post was about living your life and not worrying about what others think about you. It made me think, how much time I spend worrying about what others might think about me.

Why is it that we are so concerned about what others think about us? I mean does it really matter that someone doesn’t like me or agree with my point-of-view on life and my beliefs. Of course I want to be liked and I want to be accepted but the truth is that if people can’t accept me for who I am then why do I want them around me?

Maybe part of my need for acceptance is that I’ve never really been the popular kid or had many friends. I always tried to fit in with the group but was always the outcast. In hindsight maybe I was the outcast because I wasn’t standing up for anything including myself.

I think I need to re-evaluate my priorities and start taking a stand for the things I believe and grow a backbone. Now I know this isn’t going to happen overnight but like most things in my life right now, I’m just taking it one day at a time.

If you’re interested in reading the post mentioned above you can find it here. Now, please consider yourself warned that there is language that you may find offensive, but try to look beyond it and see how this might be applicable to your life. Imagine if more Christians lived their life and didn’t care what others thought.
